american. those talks are going nowhere, and quite frankly, the u.s. government says they do not negotiate for the release of terrorist hostages. what were the two sailors up to? driving alone first of all in kabul in one of their up-armored vehicles and ending up so far away from the capital city and their compound? that question won't be answered until probably if and when one of those sailors come back. >> nothing like interpreting some orders that could have taken them down the wrong path? is there any speculation that they could have been on some sort of assignment? >> some officials i've talked to, and my experience in ckabul and throughout afghanistan, it would be highly unusual if not impossible for one vehicle to be traveling alone without some kind of backup. all the convoys i've ever been involved in, have involved at least three vehicles. heavily armored, heavily armed, for protection. now, these two did work at various compounds, even worked at the afghan training facility which is some distance from the major compounds there inside kabul. they weren't doing that on friday, bu

will be very narrow and it's not even clear if it will pass. >> u.s. timid point out many industries and economies want an economy-wide cap and trade system so they know there are certainties about the system. does that mean that under current law that the epa could step in and say we're going to regulate transportation? >> that is exactly what is happening already. the epa is moving to regulate greenhouse gas emissions. they just announced and finalize regulations covering greenhouse gas emissions from automobiles. they have announced plans to go forward with regulations that would cover power plants. other industries. they're moving that direction. those regulations are likely to be more costly because the epa is not the expert on which technology is the best, they're just going to say you have to meet this emissions reduction and it will be much more expensive. >> could you want our viewers through what an energy-only bill looks like if they can't even do -- which it sells like it will be able to do -- cap and trade on utilities, if they can't do that, what does an energy-only bil

the u.s. and israel agree it's time for tas for -- face to face peace talks between israel hes and palestinians but several sticking points remain, including border security and israeli settlements. senior white house correspondent major garrett is reporting live on the north lawn. major, is it oversimplifying things to say this new phase of the obama-netanyahu relationship will be sealed with a photograph? >> reporter: it really isn't, jon. the last time prime minister netanyahu was at the white house there were no photographs, no press coverage of the meetings and that created the atmosphere that tph*epb yahoo and president obama did not agree on fundamental issues crucial to the u.s.-israeli relationship. both sides tried to paper over the differences but without any sort of publicly visual express of support, there was a moment for both countries to say wait a minute this relationship may be getting off track and what we had moments arc the israeli prime minister arriving precisely on time, driving from the blair house where he's saying to see president obama. we'll see the
be handling the cleanup operation but it's been overseen by the u.s. government. did the obama administration say this guy has to go, do we know if they had a hand in hayward's departure. i spoke to someone today who said it was board's decision to replace hayward. we do know that the white house clearly disapproved of hayward, not only his gaffes but also his management of the crisis when at the beginning he tried to make it alone and jump in and had taken over much of the response. >> gregg: and it's fair to say, is it not, if bp wants to continue to operate in american waters, they have to please this administration. if the administration is displeased with the person who is at the top of bp, that plays a role? >> for sure. bp is wanting the moratorium on new drilling in the gulf to be lifted. it wants to continue to be able to work in the gulf and it is currently the biggest producer in the gulf of mexico. so it's a big source of income for bp and they would not like to see it ends. most important thing is to contain the spill and then to clean it up. >> gregg: well, tony hayward is getti
